Before and After ~ Bathroom Remodeling

I'm showing my before and after bathroom project on Kelli's show and tell today. Please go over to Kelli's house to see more fun things people are showing.
Remember this blue toilet? Well, since it is now history, I will share with you our pretty new bathroom.
First I will show the before photos. The drawers were spray painted like this with blue paint.
The floor was white linoleum.
We had a blue tub and this Formica marble look around it, which was nice for the 1960's, but we wanted an update.
The two blue sinks were rusty and not as shiny as they used to be. The toilet also had rust and lime stains, which were nearly impossible to remove.


Beginning our project. My husband Stacey worked so hard to get the old flooring up.
He made trip after trip up the stairs to put new sub floor down.
Night after night after working all day for his company, he'd be doing this.
Here he is painting with his hand in his pocket again. You can see the old blue inside the closet. Our daughters Victoria and Jessica goofing off while painting the closet. They did a really good job.
Now comes the new tile floor.
He was always while working. He did such a great job. I'm so thankful for him and how hard he works. Okay, so the next picture is our pretty new bathroom.
We are thrilled with the way it turned out. We chose soft yellow, and creamy white walls, white tile floor and antique white porcelain.
My husband did everything himself except the plumbing and electrical.
He worked very hard putting in the Wayne's coating. I'm so proud of him.
We added this antique table and chair for the girls to sit and put on their make-up.
The shower is so nice and has an antique faucet.
Our neighbor made the cabinets for us. We created this counter top and little space for a night light around the backside of the shower.
He and I hung the mirror and towel bars together. I love the swivel mirror.


I'm so happy with our new pretty bathroom. It's restful and sweet. I hope you all have a lovely day today dear blogging friends. Love, Kathi

Oh, Kathi!
Your bathroom is delightful! I have a bathroom that we want to finish and yours is just what I like ~ bead board wainscotting, little hexagon tiles on the floor ~ perfect. What a great job your husband did! I am sure you all are going to really enjoy it.

linda said...

Your bathroom transformation is remarkable...it's stunning! You are so very fortunate that your husband is handy and able to fix things around the house. We have to hire out for everything!

Pearl said...

Ohhh Kathi... It's simply Beautiful... Excellent job by ALL! It must be like a dream to walk in there now... I know what you meant about the stains, etc. with the blue fixtures... our bathroom has the same blue and the same problems... ~sigh~ ... When my bathroom grows up, it wants to be just like yours!! God Bless...

Deb said...

Wow! Kathi! It's so beautiful! I love it! I tell my husband that when we remodel ours we'll use beadboard instead of tile, I really like the look. I love everything about it but most,the tile floors and I love the desk you put in for the girls. I had to stop in and I can't resist a remodel. Deb

Mrs.Ruiz said...

It is beautiful Kathi:) Thanks for all the encouraging and caring words you have been leaving on my post.

Utah Grammie said...

This is probably the most impressive make-over I have seen! Really, really nice - such hard work (we are always re-modeling SOMETHING!) and to see these results - well they should be in a magazine. Really.

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Kathi, Your new bathroom is fabulous!! I bet you're so excited. Stacey is a very hardworking handsome..man. The two of you make the perfect couple.
Hugs, Terrie

My Grandkids ROCK said...

Wow that bathroom should be in magazines. I love all the details that you thought of. It is so pretty. I would have to leave the door opened and keep walking by it to look at it every few minutes. Pam

Tiffany said...

I love how you changed it back to being more in the style of your farmhouse. It is such a talent your husband has to be able to do that kind of work himself.

I used to do Show and Tell but then started with Menu Plan Monday and haven't had time to do S&T also. Might have to get back to it. I just felt bad when I didn't have time to look at everyone else's posts.

Oh, about my blog, I am flattered that you thought I actually knew how to superimpose pictures and stuff:) Darcy over at Graphically Designing did it for me. She does great work! Her button is on my blog if you don't know her blog address already. Blessings!

I am absolutely and totally impressed with the makeover. It's perfect. I know you will enjoy it for a long time.

Utah Grammie said...

I know I've already commented, but I just showed my hubby, who does all our remodeling, and he was like "WOW! They did a fantastic job - it's really nice"

Just wanted you to have a "Man's" opinion.. :-)

Victoria ~ Auction Girl Vintage said...

This is a beautiful project, Kathi, everything looks absolutely wonderful and it's all so bright! I especially like the new floor with the retro tiles. DH and I have a favorite restaurant in Portland -- Jakes -- that occupies the ground floor of an historic hotel, and they have those itty bitty tiles with a mosaic border, all original and around 100 years old.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by.

Victoria :o)

Jane said...

You did a wonderful job. What a difference.

Lisa said...

Wow, that is an absolutely gorgeous bathroom.

Nora Lee said...

Kathi, you new bathroom is beautiful. How nice for it to be a "family" project, it means that much more. I espeically love the sink and mirror!

Sarah said...

What a great new bathroom. It's gorgeous!

Beth said...

Your remodeled bathroom is just lovely. I like the idea of the antique table. We have a bathroom about the age of the one you remodeled, only substitute the blue color with a dusty pink. It's looking so old that I think in another year or so it will be back in style! LOL

Gail said...

Kathi~

Your new bathroom is gorgeous!

I really like the color of your old blue bathtub, sink and toilet- I think they are pretty :)

enjoy your beautiful- looks- like -a -magazine- bathroom!

God bless

Ashley @ Domestic Fashionista said...

Wow what a transformation! Those spray painted drawers kill me! lol! You have done a great job...and looking at those pictures it looks like your family was a great team!

I am glancing at your cat posing with Breaking Free...too funny! Maybe you should send this to Beth Moore and she could use it as an advertisement! lol!

And I love the Cosby show...nothing like good ol clean family fun...whatever happened to those days?

thanks for stopping by! :) Ashley

Jadehollow said...
